Canna Lily Surprise

When we first moved into our house, just over a year ago - July 2 of 2011, there were no flowers  to be found anywhere on the property.  Granted, last year there were about 70 days of the summer over 100 degrees, not to mention the house was up for sale with no one living there, so there wasn't really anyone to take care of the flowers if they had been present.

However, this spring, we got a nice surprise in the back yard when some canna lilies came up in the very back corner of our lot.  It seems like someone planted them there to hid some of the electrical boxes that are located back in the corner.  They are very beautiful, and better yet, they do not require any care from my part (I think they get enough water from being close enough to the neighbor's sprinkler system!).
